This who I am

Someone asked me a question..

"Why do you always have to put God in all your writings? Can't you just write a normal article"

My answer

It is who I am.

I am more confident when I write. My writings are the through expressions of me as an individual. It describes how I feel and goes beneath any mask I might be wearing. When I write I express my fears, hopes and all the things I want to do. It is the real me on paper..

I am at a point in my life where I don't consider my Christianity a religion. Its a lifestyle. Truth is I met this guy, His name is Jesus and I realised he has done so much for me and He wants me to live my life for me. Not just on sundays but everyday and all aspects. Also he cares about me more than any human I know so his opinion counts.

Don't get it twisted I am a million miles away from perfect. My failures and weaknesses are many and I can't even count. I struggle with sin and sometimes I find it hard to go to church. Either way, I cannot remove him from my writings because he consumes my thoughts a lot. Its because I know where I am coming from and I know how far he is brought me.

So when you read my articles, or you go to the Yada site or you listen to my spoken word pieces and you hear me find a way to include him. Don't be angry and don't even take it like I am trying to preach or witness to you. Its just who I am. Maybe soon, I'll figure out a way to be very "non-religious" in some of the things I write but for now take me as I am....

Because this is who I am....

Can't help it!
